TeaMp0isoN's TriCk Pleads Guilty, Faces Jail Time
Junaid Hussain of Birmingham, better known as TriCk, the leader of the TeaMp0isoN collective, has pleaded guilty to hacking into the Gmail account of former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and to making more than 100 prank calls that targeted the UK's counter-terrorism hotline.
Hussain, who has recently turned 18, faces jail time for making public the information he stole from Tony Blair’s account, including addresses, email addresses and phone numbers, The Sun reports.
The hacker’s attorney attempted to convince the court that the calls he had made were a mere hoax, but Judge Peter Testar stated that there was a good chance that Hussain could go to prison. The sentencing will take place next month.
